These are interesting times for us all, our world will recover in time. I have already become more aware of my surroundings – seeing two house-martins to-day was joyous.

It is very strange to be locked in the bookshop – I now call it the bookshop office. If you want to know what we have in stock do visit the website NearSt and also email for more accurate information on our stock in hand.

Enjoy Easter and reflect:-

“anything worth thinking about is worth

singing about..” by Mary Oliver

Take great care,
